The WFNB Annual Literary Competition was established in 1984, and awards prizes of nearly $1500 each year. The competition is open to New Brunswick residents and all members of the WFNB.
Professional, out of province writers judge entries for a very reasonable fee. All judging is blind.
The results of the competition are announced in the spring at the WFNB Annual Dinner held during WordsSpring and all entrants are invited to attend and read from their work. Winners receive a cash prize and provincial recognition.
Competition winners have gone on to publish their work in magazines and with major publishing houses. (Editors are always impressed with contest winners!)
The WFNB encourages all New Brunswick writers to take pride in their work and enter the competition. Please check submission rules before entering.
Note: our 2013 competition will open December 15, 2012 and close on February 28, 2013.
